Tooth and Claw....

More Otters

Otters again

Happened to be up early enough today and two Otters showed pretty well in the 'usual place'. We watched them fishing and they seemed to be catching Loach sp (not sure what the prey item is in the last photo though- in front of the Otter's nose). As ever a great experience and truly addictive.

Pectoral Sandpiper at Deeping Lakes- first for the reserve

Great find by Mike Weedon on my old patch yesterday lunchtime. Went after work and was afforded excellent views of this typically fearless juvenile.

Sunday 2 September 2018


This morning I have mostly been taking photos of Otter's heads.... Not long after dawn I watched and listened to a mother and her two young playing, fighting and fishing. Eventually I was left with just one which was very confiding and super experience until after two hours it decided to power off upstream, never to be seen again (well..until tomorrow morning!?).

Willow Emerald

A new species for me- at Titchwell RSPB.

Red-necked Phalarope at Titchwell

This juvenile Red-necked Phalarope was mostly distant during our visit to Titchwell RSPB on the 1st. Smart bird nevertheless.
